    While You Were Sleeping


    The very definition of a guilty pleasure: a ludicrous sitcom premise with horrible music, but I have a soft spot for it due to a cast that commits to the cornball material and delivers great line readings. (Best in class: Peter Gallagher's "Do I like Jell-O?".)

    Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea


    Roland Emmerich wishes he could dream up something as stupid as "The Van Allen Belts are on fire!!!". The Captain Ahab undercurrents only intriguing dramatic spark.

    Third-rate paperback writer bullshit pretending its not. Ace cinematography from Roger Deakins.

    The Incredible Shrinking Woman


    A pastel-drenched trainwreck. Too dopey and shrill to take seriously as any sort of satire; whether it be of consumerism, chemicals in products, or late Seventies culture. Network for retards.
